FOR SESSION MODERATORS
Presentation Approval Dashboard (PAD) – The new Presentation Approval Dashboard will allow session moderators to review the slide presentations for their session. In addition to the lecture slides, any speakers presenting virtually will be asked to submit their pre-recorded lectures for review by their session moderators. Moderators will receive the PAD link in early March.
Ask the Speaker Feature – The moderators will select learner questions that will be answered during the panel discussions on the program. Moderators and speakers will be encouraged to track the questions submitted by learners and to respond by keying in answers during the session. Speakers may also be asked to monitor questions for up to 48 hours following the conclusion of the meeting to answer additional learner questions. Prior to the meeting, moderators and speakers will receive a link to monitor the questions submitted on meeting day.

FOR ALL SPEAKERS
Lecture Slides – DUE March 1, 2023
All presentation materials (slides, video) must be submitted no later than March 1, 2023 so that the planning team can review your presentation for quality, content, and potential conflicts. You may be asked to make edits to your slides – and we need ample time to allow for those changes to be made.
Presentation slides – Please provide your presentation slides (no video/audio) as a PDF file. Your slides should be formatted in the 16:9 ratio. This version of your presentation will be linked to your lecture title in our Mobile Meeting Guide for registrants to view before, during and after the live meeting day. Meeting participants value the slides for quick reference to the content you shared in your lecture. Slides developed in PowerPoint, Prezi and Keynote saved as a PDF file will be accepted.
Please create your slides with the first being the title slide, the second including disclosure of any conflicts of interest and the third listing your lecture objective.

There are several other resources on how to give a great presentation. For anyone who frequently uses PowerPoint, we offer this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iwpi1Lm6dFo
The take home points from this link on How to Avoid Death per PowerPoint:
- 1 message per slide
- Use contrast and text size to steer audience focus
- Use a dark background
- Include no more than 6 points per slide
- Avoid full-text sentences
